Abstract:

Problems are described of the toxicology of beryllium, the symptomatology of affections caused by the action of this compound, industrial hygiene for beryllium production, and the protection of the environment from contamination with production wastes. The authors have worked out sanitary-hygienic requirements for the designing of production areas, for the various types of equipment used, and for industrial ventilation systems. The sanitary-hygienic requirements described apply primarily to the production of beryllium and components fabricated from this metal and to enterprises or shops which produce beryllium-rich alloys of other metals. These requirements cannot be completely extended to the production processes by which alloys containing only small quantities of beryllium are obtained and to work associated with the fabrication of components from such alloys.
